You're an actor, singer, and dancer which one you couldn’t live without ?
This is an incredibly hard question! I don’t think I can actually answer that. Even though I’m
currently acting the most at the moment they all are so special to me.
Which profession l came first? Nowadays a lot of people are triple threat what make you
My parents put me into dance classes when I was 2. I begged them to put me into singing (at age Five when I saw my first Spice Girls music video, and acting came when my parents put me in summer camps. As a child I was always drawn to finding new ways of expressing myself, and connecting emotionally with people. So, I think what makes me stand out is my ability to do those things through my humor and my vulnerability.
Lets have a little fun :
USA or Canada or Europe ? Europe. But I love Canada (My home country) and the USA a lot.
So, it’s very hard to pick.
b. Pizza or Sandwich? Pizza
c. Meat eater or Vegan ? Vegan
d. Plane or Boat? Plane
f. Uber or Drive yourself? Drive myself
e. Stream it or Go see it live? Live! I love being in the room with an audience, it has that buzzing energy. But sometimes it is nice being in the comfort of your own home.
What a day in your life like?
Usually my day starts with feeding my cat. Then I’ll check my email, and my schedule for the
day, do some cardio or a workout to get my body moving. Then I’ll make a matcha latte and
work on any auditions I have or scenes for acting classes/rehearsals. When I’m not working or I am class/show - I like spending quality time with my husband and hanging out with friends.
What inspires you in life?
Other creatives, painters, dancers, singers, actors. Nature inspires me, a long hike, a walk, being with animals. Also when I see acts of bravery in real life, that really inspires me. Seeing a person persevere no matter what gets thrown at them.
What projects are you working on now for 2022 and 2023 that you care to mention?
I’m really excited about the projects I have coming up in 2023. One is a film with Disney+
directed by Alberto Belli, and the other is a romantic film directed by Alpha Nicky Mulowa.
Currently my movie I Won’t Let you go directed by Meeshelle Neal is on Lifetime was just
released on Amazon Prime USA. I have two short films called The Care Giver and Artifice that just entered the festival circuit this month and have already been winning and nominated for
awards multiple festivals. Which has been really exciting!
What form of dance is your most favorite?
If I had to pick - My favorite style of dance is jazz and heels, because it’s fun and high energy.
There is a grace to ballet and waltzing that is also very beautiful to perform and watch.

Montell Jordan - This Is How We Do It
Mariah Carey- Fantasy
Celine Dion - Love Is on The Way
Whitney Huston - I Wanna Dance with Somebody
